  • US Man Stabs Father to Death During Zoom Video Call as Attendees Watch Horror

Thomas Scully-Powers, 32, was arraigned via video and ordered jailed without bail after pleading not guilty to a murder charge in the attack on Long Island, New York, on Thursday that left 72-year-old Dwight Powers almost decapitated as horrified call participants scrambled to dial 911.

Some of the people may have witnessed the attack, reports said.

The fatal stabbing of Powers appears to be the first slaying to occur on a Zoom chat during the coronavirus pandemic.

Prosecutors say Scully-Powers attacked his father around noon on Thursday at their Amityville apartment as the older man sat down for a Zoom video meeting, beating him before returning to the room with a knife.

Witnesses recalled hearing Powers' heavy breathing over the call. But officers' response was delayed because nobody on the call was sure where Powers lived, they said.

Chat members saw Powers slump over and his naked son in the background, authorities said. "They were all concerned about their friend". One witness, who was not identified, calls what they saw freaky. He was arrested about a mile away.

A NY suburb was in shock Friday over a gruesome murder that saw a 32-year-old man stab and kill his father, who was attending a Zoom conference that included about 20 participants.

Suffolk Police said details on his arraignment and detention would be available once Scully-Powers is released from the hospital. WABC reported that Scully-Powers answered the door, before slamming it closed and running upstairs.

Once they figured out the victim's name and address, they called 911.
